We’re back for another delicious gig at Durham’s G2B Gastro Pub! Bring your appetite and/or your dance shoes for a lovely evening of jazz and swing. 🙂

The show is free, but we recommend making a reservation if you would like to eat or have a seat, because the tables usually fill up before we arrive – please specify that you would like to be seated in the jazz lounge.

Hob Nob Jazz Concert Series at Koka Booth Amphitheater, May 22, 2013

This Wednesday, May 22, 2013 the Mint Julep Jazz Band will play Cary, NC’s Koka Booth Amphitheater as part of the amphitheater’s Hob Nob Jazz Concert Series! We’ve been hearing it advertised on WUNC and hope that you and some new faces will join us for a concert at this lovely outdoor venue. Joining us as an opening band is the Triangle Youth Jazz Combo. Here are the details:

The bands will be on the Crescent Deck, opposite the main stage.

Thanks to G2B Gastro Pub for hosting the Mint Julep Quintet!

This past Friday the Mint Julep Quintet premiered at G2B Gastro Pub in Durham, NC – we’d like to thank G2B not only for giving an unknown band a chance, but also for their impeccable hospitality to both the band and our guests and, without a doubt, the greatest hamburger we have ever tasted. We managed to fill up the jazz lounge and, for that, we thank everyone who came from near and far to hear us perform, including a group of fans from Lake Gaston. It was a lovely evening, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue or crowd!

The Mint Julep Quintet Premiers October 5 at G2B Gastro Pub

The swanky lounge area at G2B

While an 8 piece band is great for dances and special events, it is generally too large for restaurants and bars in the Raleigh/Durham area. We’d still like to bring you the hot jazz and swing, so we’ve pared ourselves down to a quintet! The Mint Julep Quintet will have its first performance at G2B Gastro Pub in Durham, NC on October 5, 2012.

I’ll have one of these, please! And a side of Clarinet Marmalade.

We’re excited to be performing at G2B – we hope you’ll join us for a delicious dinner or come hang out and grab a beer!
